Dark Chocolate, Beet and Cherry Muffins

Adapted from Home Grown Harvest, I used whole wheat pastry flour along with homemade beet infused cocoa, home-dried cherries, homegrown beets, flaxseed to make a vegan treat for the girls at my hair salon. Applesauce from local apples replaced half the oil too – but you’d never guess these were in any way healthy!

It appears the source for this portrait may have been from:

A copy of this painting, a Portrait in oil at the National Maritime Museum

A three-quarter-length portrait of Captain Cook, seated to the left, facing the right. He is wearing captain’s full-dress uniform, 1774-87, consisting of a navy blue jacket, white waistcoat with gold braid and gold buttons and white breeches. He wears a grey wig or his own hair powdered. He holds his own chart of the Southern Ocean on the table and his right hand points to the east coast of Australia on it. His left thumb and finger lightly hold the other edge of the chart over his knee. His hat sits on the table behind him to the left on top of a substantial book, perhaps his journal, itself resting on the chart.

In 1772, Cook sailed for the second time to the fringes of the Antarctic and the Pacific, returning in 1775. He sat for this portrait, commissioned by Sir Joseph Banks, ‘for a few hours before dinner’ on 25 May 1776 but it is not known whether he did so again before he left London on 24 June for his third voyage, never to return. None the less, David Samwell, surgeon’s mate in ‘Resolution’ on the second voyage and surgeon of ‘Discovery’ on the third, thought it ‘a most excellent likeness … and … the only one I have seen that bears any resemblance to him’. This view was based on John Sherwin’s later engraving of the portrait, which probably argues even more favourably for the original despite an element of idealization, not least omission of a large burn scar (from 1764) on the right hand. Banks had sailed with Cook on his first voyage in the ‘Endeavour’ and took an influential interest in his subsequent ones. This portrait hung over the fireplace in the library of his London house. After his death, it was presented to the Naval Gallery at Greenwich Hospital by his executor, Sir Edward Knatchbull, following a request by E.H. Locker, the Hospital Secretary.

The artist worked with Pompeo Batoni in Rome and on his return to London in 1765 achieved success as a portrait and history painter. In 1768, he joined a group of artists who successfully petitioned George III to establish the Royal Academy in that year.

The use ofthem in medicine is perhapsnot so great in these dayswhen a doctor can be readilycalled, but in the old times nohousewife was without agoodly show of them in theyard, and she dried themcarefully for winter use. Norare herbs used nowadays somuch for flavoring in cook-ing; and, when they are de-sired, the pressed leaves arebought at the druggists. The home-grown article isfar better than money can buy. A hom.e with even.a small strip of land can find place for some of theseplants which are so valuable. Herbs delight in a rich, mellow soil.

Herbs should be cut on adry day just before they come into full blossom,tied in bunches and hung up in the attic or spreadthinly on a floor where they can dry quickly. Ofcourse cuttings for daily use, green, may be madeat any time, but too severe cutting weakens the plants.Seedsmen sell plants, ready to set, of some of thebetter-known herbs. Many of the perennial kindsmay be propagated by dividing the roots—which isa good thing to do every few years; and, when doingso, discard the old, run-out part of each clump. Among the better-known perennial herbs are thefollowing: Balm, catnip, fennel, horehound, hyssop,lavender (not hardy too far north), sweet marjoram,pennyroyal, peppermint, rosemary, rue, sage, spear-mint, tansy, tarragon, thyme, winter savory, worm-wood.
